You have been asked quite a few times to make sure that you include the authors name on every post unless it is your own work.So you posted at the min.of 8 times today and not once did you mention the author on any of your posts.The reason behind this is so that we do not have any problems with the actual owner of the material. Thanks

The recording industry's trade group spent nearly $2.8 million pumping up the volume on its lobbying on Capitol Hill last year.

The Washington-based Recording Industry Association of America lobbied on a bill to limit fees charged to Internet radio stations for music broadcasts and on efforts to limit copyright violations, especially overseas.

The trade group spent $2.1 million lobbying in the second half of 2007, according to a form posted online Feb. 12 by the Senate's public records office. It spent $659,000 on lobbying in the first half of the year.

Lobbyists are required to disclose activities that could influence members of the executive and legislative branches, under a federal law enacted in 1995.
